Cellphone technology continues to become more advanced and more people become connected through smartphones and social media. As a result, distracted driver accidents have become a nationwide epidemic, and texting while driving is a common cause of distraction. Studies have shown that people who text while driving have the same level of impairment as drivers under the influence of alcohol who cause DWI accidents.
Do I Need a Lawyer for Car Accidents Involving Texting?
Whether it is only for a second or for longer, any lapse in attention can be enough to result in a serious accident. Texting while driving is not the only cellphone activity that has started to contribute to accidents in New York and New Jersey. Other activities such as checking e-mail, posting on Facebook and other social networking sites, or even watching YouTube clips all take a driver’s eyes and attention away from the road. Distracted driving can kill and car accidents while texting are on the rise.
